Pre-treatment with a component of the spice turmeric, called curcumin, makes ovarian cancer cells more vulnerable to chemotherapy and radiotherapy, reveals a new study by Indian-origin researchers.
Buzz up!The researchers found that delivering the curcumin via very small (less than 100nm) nanoparticles enhanced the sensitizing effect.
Dr. Subhash Chauhan, and Dr. Meena Jaggi, led a team of researchers from Sanford Research and the University of South Dakota, USA, who carried out the in vitro study.
